I still long for the 187, but when I wear liquid foundation, I'll either use my angled foundation brush and start on my cheeks and blend out - then forehead, chin, nose; concealer, etc - or I'll just pump some in my hand, then a pump of moisturizer, and blend it all over with my hands. depending on the coverage I want, I add more or less of foundation or moisturizer.

lately though, I've been using just primer and powder, and I have the perfect coverage for summer. not too heavy, and virtually no touch ups. great for when its 90+ degrees out.

I just use my fingers, thats what I prefer. I really only want the 187 for highlighters and cream blushes anyway.

I used to use my fingers. Now I use the MAC 168, I don't really like the 187 for foundation tbh.

It's actually a contour brush Lil, I find the results better then the 187 (I do have it as well)... the results are smoother and it's easier to handle, the application is more controllable. I noticed on Leesha's vids that she uses it too, but a MAC MA actually recommended it to me.

whee i know, how easy are they? and the warmth makes my foundation so easy to blend, i would just feel wierd using my fingers on someone elses face!

plus, my mum has been using the same sponge that came with ehr powder for MONTHS and its grossing me the hell out.
i want to get her a nice brush as a surprise so i cans top feeling sick and she can look less cakey Very Happy

I like the finish the 187 has, but it really isn't essential. Before that I mixed foundation, liquid illuminator and a dot of moisturiser and put it on with my hands.

I use the simple wedge makeup sponge. I just use new ones a lot (because they get groady).

On myself, a normal foundation brush is easiest. On others, I prefer a wedge sponge.

I've seen people get just as amazing results with a sponge or their fingers as I have with a 187. I think it's a bit of a 'have', everyone who thinks they're a MAC MA must absolutely positively own one! There's no such thing as a magic brush. It's all in the wrist action, bebe.

PS: That's not aimed at anyone, it's just an observation >.<

well I used to use a sponge too but I find it soaks up all my product and gives me hardly anything and that's why I got a brush Razz

For me, it depends on the type of foundation. I like the 187 for more liquid/fluid foundations and the 190 for cream or just thicker liquid foundations.

Yeah, it depends on how you use it, and the kind of sponge. Apparently mose that come out with cosmetics have really loose "cells" and are made to soak up shit loads of product Neutral

That's just conjecture, I've never heard any hard evidence on it, it's talk from MAs.

If you're good with a brush, sweet as. Some people do better with their fingers (not me, haha) or whatever.
